I have always been around dogs, I grew up with not only a houseful of brothers and sisters but numerous dogs as well. Big dogs and little dogs, mixed and pedigree. We've had them all.
Back then, the only option for your dog was a traditional collar and leash. There were so such things as no pull dog harness or no pull dog collars. It wasn't until I had my own family and pets that I researched getting a harness for our family dog and found that a dog harness is much more beneficial to walking and controlling your dog.
Why A Dog Harness Is Better Than A Leash
I find that my dog does not pull as much with a harness. Pulling a dog with a leash can lead to neck and back injuries of the dog.
My son's dog, who is over 70 lbs. walks so much better with a harness. I have better control with a harness than a leash. It controls his body not his neck and head.
Harnesses Are More Comfortable Than Leashes
Dog Harnesses are more comfortable than a leash pulling on a dogs neck.
Ease of Use
Using a harness is just as easy to use as a leash. Simply slip the harness over his legs or torso and off you go.
Types Of Dog Harnesses
There are 2 basic types of dog harnesses, both are outlined below and padding is an option for optimum comfort.
No pull dog harnesses come in 4 basic sizes. Small through extra large. Measure your dog to ensure proper fit and comfort. Dog Harnesses are also adjustable to provide the correct size.
Colors and Patterns
No Pull Dog Harnesses come in a variety of colors and patterns with matching leashes. You can even dress your dog in your favorite team attire.
There are two different types of step in no pull dog harnesses.
The step in dog harness that fits around the front paws and around the neck with the leash attachment at the front or back of the neck as pictured in the Easy Walk.
Another type of step in dog harness fits not only around the front paws and neck but is elongated down the torso with the leash attachment at the torso, such as the Bison.
Whichever you choose, either style will make walking your dog a more pleasurable experience for both of you.
